Giampaolo Talani: Notte del marinaio, 1994
Notte del Marinaio is a work of Giampaolo Talani. In the centre of the representation is the figure of a sailor and a shimmering moon, which plunges the clear night in a full blue. The figure is clutching a sailboat. It is alone, not in favour of breaking the waves but to glide along them. The water of the sea symbolizes the flow of time, the drifting of individual experiences and events in a person's life.
Growing up in Tuscany, the sea and its characteristics accompanied the artist throughout his life, placing the water and the human being at the centre of his creative work and repeatedly putting both elements in a stimulating dialogue with each other.
